Danes Sweep World Record!

Visit Us

On 14 September 2019, a new world record in skydiving was set high over Maribo and FDK skydiving club.

In fact FIVE records were set in total: a Danish daytime sequential record (full break) 3 Points, a Danish night record (17 way), a Danish night sequential record (full break) 2 points, a continental European night record (full break) 2 points, and (Ta-Da!!)… A new WORLD RECORD night jump, 17 way 2 points (full break).

All these records were designed and organized by Carsten Cooper-Jensen who had worked on this project for over a year, bringing the best Danish skydivers together in spectacular end summer weather.

The teamwork and camaraderie of the group was amazing, with jumpers from around the country helping each other and working together to make this dream a reality.

The community also rallied behind the team as over 100 locals came out Friday night to cheer on the group and rushing to cars to pick up those that landed off the dropzone. In fact a sixth unofficial record may also have been set for the longest “out” landing on a night jump Friday night!!
I am so proud of Carsten for all the hard work and effort he had put into this project. Sometimes dreams do come true. ❤

(Disclaimer, I was not on the dive, my night vision isn’t that great anymore-but I enthusiastically cheered them on and helped to open champagne bottles!)

A special thank you to Larsen & Brusgaard for the buffs, shirts, loaner Ares altimeters and other cool stuff!
